    --  Catherine Hobby Family Tree,

    Note that James and Oliver are reported to have died on the same date and place.  I also found at least one other genealogy that has records for James M Green for Oliver D, which seems even more suspicious.  The reported death date and place reported above for both James and Oliver are the same as the Civil War record for Oliver D Green.  The datre above for James' death is the date tha he was mustered out of service in the Confederate States Army, according to the military record below.  There is, in fact, a second record for James M Green with a different death date in 1864, though the location is the same.

    In the 1850 census matching James' family, the child matching him is reported as 17 yeas old, under the initals that look like IM.  But it is probably meant to be J M, which matches James M in the list of children found above and in many other records and sources.

    A regiment roster reports that James died of measles soon after joining the army.  His brother Thomas Benton Green was in the same regiment.  Also in the list is a William J Green, their nephew, the nephew of their brother Tyree.  William die din January 1865, while his brother Thomas was released at the end of the war.

    The identity of the other Greens in this regiment list are not known.  I suspect that the Benton A Green was actually Thomas Bention.  Note that all these Green surnamed individuals joined the army on the same day.  I suspect that there was a confusion over the name Thomas Bention, and the middle name got entered as another erosn.  This list notes that there is no further record on that name.

    --  Ranger 95 Civil War Records,

    His Civil War record shows he was mustered out of the service on 30 July 1862.  Regiment records report he died of measles on that day in Bridgeport, Tennessee.

    A burial formerly thought to be for our James M Green appeaers to be for a different soldier.  Informatoin discovered about him indicates this James M Green, who is buried in Baldwin County, Georgia, was in the 9th Regiment, while our James M Green was in the 55th Georgia Infantry Regiment.

    Though James was mustered out of service, he died during the war, on 30 August 1864.  A military gravestone was placed on his grave indicating his service in the Confederate Army.  His memorial on FInd a Grave matches that record.
